Going into the 2022 NBA Draft, David Roddy was a bit uncertain whether he was going to get selected or not. Until the moment came when commissioner David Silver called his name.

“I’m on the way to the house, not even knowing if I’m gonna get drafted. What my agent’s talking about, he’s given me the whole plan about each team and each pick. Who’s interested or not. He’s walking back and forth pretty calmly throughout the night, just updating my mom about what’s going on. By pick 21, he started walking faster,” Roddy said while being interviewed on the Role Player podcast by Swish Cultures.

Roddy, a 21-year-old forward, talked to Anthony Goods and Jordan Taylor about the whole experience of the Draft night, making the jump from college basketball with the Colorado State to becoming a pro, translating his game to the NBA and more.
